To large extent I spent the end of summer 2004 by riding there and back in Prague and Lisbon's trams. My aim was to make a small survey of the life of tram drivers of the two cities and to try to capture this everyday life with my camera.
The WANTED project was carried out in Amman, Jordan. Portraits of representatives of Iraqi civil society shortly after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. The photos are accompanied by short texts based on interviews collected by Jana Ledvinová.
An installation of 800 hand-made photographs from my archive. The visitors of the Bratislava 13M3 gallery exchanged them for their stories. After two weeks, the remaining photos were dismantled and the wall contained 80 handwritten depictions.
It was spring 2009 when I sailed on the Tejo and Vltava Rivers. I rode boats with beautifully sounding names like the Eborense, Alentejense, Trafaria Praia, and also on the more familiarly dubbed Vyšehrad, Vltava, and Labe…
And I swayed. I swayed for a few weeks in Lisbon and Prague as well, long after the boats had docked and I had disembarked. This swaying is what I hold as my deepest memory of that time…
A mixed media installation is an hommage to Mugur Călinescu, a 16-years old high school student from Romania who decided to protest against the communist regime by writing words with chalk on walls.
What price are we willing to pay for the opportunity to express our own opinion? And what messages do we find written on the walls today? Today it is often difficult to imagine that even simply writing words on a wall can be an act of great heroism in a certain situation.
Inspired by Gianina Cărbunariu and Radu Jude.
